Message: "The Wonder of the Unexpected"
Christmas unfolds in a most unexpected way. You would think that the Creator of the universe would come with great pomp and circumstance. Instead, Jesus arrives in a seemingly insignificant (but ultimately profound) way, teaching us something of the character of God. For Joseph, the arrival of Jesus is unexpected and turns his world upside down. Instead of running away and abandoning his family, however, he ultimately demonstrates incredible obedience. As we prepare for Christmas, we are reminded of the wonder of the unexpected ways God shows up in our lives.
